Mt. Si NRCA – Green Mtn Trail & CCC Trail Bridges

Category Overview

The State Lands Development and Renovation category provides funding to two state agencies to repair, renovate, and develop outdoor recreation facilities on existing recreation lands. As the popularity of outdoor recreation increases in our state, these grants help address overcrowding, ensure our outdoor amenities are safe for public use, improve visitor experience, and allow more people to enjoy our great outdoors.

Project Highlights

The Department of Natural Resources used this grant to develop a new 2.2-mile Green Mountain hiking trail to a viewpoint located just below the summit of Green Mountain within Mount Si NRCA, approximately 30 miles east of Seattle. Development included the installation of three new trail bridges, one on the new hiking trail up to a viewpoint and two to reopen the existing CCC non-motorized multiple use trail. The primary recreation opportunity provided by the project will be improved hiking, equestrian, and mountain bike trails
